There are a number of reasons why you may want or need to make the case for your musical activity: because it is threatened (for example, by proposed changes to your music library); because you want to lobby your local authority to create, re-instate or keep a facility or service (e.g. a community venue); or because you need to prove to a potential sponsor or funder why music is worth supporting.
We have therefore put together some useful materials to help you make the case for amateur music.
